To put things into perspective, you referring to the ‘Justice of the peace and commissioners of oaths Act 16 of 1963,’ in particular one of its regulations which is part of the structural components of an Act i.e. you also have long title, short title, definitional clause etc.
"AND THAT THE PROVISIONS OF THE REGULATION CONTAINED IN GOVERNMENT NOTICE R1258 DATED 21 JULY 1972 HAVE BEEN COMPLIED WITH,"
is a peremptory provision and simply directs that the affidavit must have certain content and be done in a certain manner but not that this statement be included in the affidavit itself.
